Things to know about using this craft:

  • Staging will decouple the K-Drive core so that its ready to use. The cargo bay must stay opened while decoupling or it will explode.
  • The K-Drive needs a minimum speed / altitude to work.
  • Use the Elevon 4 on the K-Drive to throttle it.
  • Throttling the K-Drive doesn’t work when the cargo bay is closed. If you want to close it to reduce drag, first adjust the Elevon 4 with the bay opened, close it and toggle the K-Drive on/off with the Klaw arming (action 9).
  • Before timewarping or switching scene, you need to dock the K-Drive core (action 9).
  • Cargo bays and wheels can be used as airbrakes.
  • Use the probodobodyne OKTO2 Control from here to help vertical landing.
  • Equipped for scientific missions.
  • Have fun !

Issues
- The Klaw doesn’t generate drag until it is used for docking the core at which point it always generate drag.
- If the core initial decoupling is done with the cargo bay closed, the k-drive explode.

Update 2017-11-12 12h00: Opened cargo bay at launch to prevent explosion.
